Diplomat Anne Smedinghoff of River Forest was on foot when she was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.

Officials said Smedinghoff and her group were on foot and not in an armored vehicle when they were killed last weekend, according to witnesses and U.S. officials interviewed by McClatchy newspapers. One of the witnesses is an Afghan TV reporter who says they were lost while walking from a book-donation event.
